Project completed implementation in January 2022
Working with 139 schools, the project drew on solar-powered, satellite-enabled distance learning EdTech infrastructure to deliver interactive learning sessions to students, teachers, communities and government officials in Accra and the Volta region of Ghana. 72 government school classrooms were transformed into learning and information hubs used to train and educate community members. A targeted stipend scheme addressed financial barriers to girls’ attendance and served as an incentive to families to ensure girls make the transition to secondary school.
